Week 38 - Ohio Star

This is another 9 patch trying to fit into 8 inches. I haven't checked the finished size on this one, but I did cut the square pieces at 3 3/16ths. I haven't made it with a dark background before so this was fun.

The Ohio Star is is an all-time favorite block. Joyce and I - with her then 9-year-old daughter's eager assistance - made a quilt for Tanya with large Ohio Stars on a white background some dozen or so years ago.

Ah, yes, the challenge of a nine patch block in an 8" size. I love the fabric for your background. Is the color true? It looks to be a luscious dark chocolate brown.

Love the old traditional patterns. I can't wait to see all the squares together.
